OK... We discussed burritos... We discussed sandwiches... I think we should discuss pizza. What do you love on your pizza?

I like so many... there is one at a local place that has basically everything but the kitchen sink + sunflower seeds on it that is very good. But I think my top pizza is just tomato sauce, mozzarella, Italian sausage, and Mama Lil's Peppers.

  • I'll take a standard, New York style slice - cheese and sauce, that's it for me!

  • Local chain near me has this bomb pizza called the "hot honey":
    Creamy garlic sauce, salami, red onion, fresh jalapenos, bacon pieces, and honey drizzle.

    I prefer home made pizza to shop pizza, and I like to pile on a lot of veg in between the salami and cheese to kid myself that it's healthy, so usually it will be a mountain of mushroom, onion, capsicum, baby spinach, asparagus if it's in season, occasionally finely shredded cavolo nero and cherry tomatoes. Then I have to eat it with a knife and fork because there's so much topping it falls apart. Worth it.

    P.S. I am 100% march-in-the-streets against pineapple on pizza. I cannot be doing with fruit in savoury food.

  • Depends on what kind of mood I'm in. I usually go Margherita style to test out new places. Prosciutto and mushrooms with Buffalo mozzarella is my jam though.

    I ate at some pizza place whose name I can't remember in a neighborhood I rarely go to and they served honey alongside the pizza with the advice to drizzle it on. It was yummy!

    Pineapple: I have a Finnish chat friend and she showed me the menu of a big chain there ... Almost every pizza had pineapple on it!!
  • Pepperoni & Pineapple.

    Or Buffalo chicken if I'm feeling fancy.

    I am personally in the pineapple is OK on Pizza camp, even though pizzas have some different names over Australia and the World I enjoy a good Hawaiian Pizza (tomato, ham, pineapple and cheese) its impossible to stuff up but its not my go to. My Wife enjoys BBQ Chicken with Pineapple and that,s her go to. 

    I often order specials that are named after the owners we have a local pizza shop that has a Carla Special. Ham, Mushrooms, hot salami, onion, beef, garlic, herbs, chilli, cheese. Its magnificent but hurts when you have too much. I also love a good BBQ Meatlovers followed by a food coma and 3 hours of excercise the next day

    My Favourite pizza of all time is from a local pizza place in the suburb I used to grow up, another simple pizza the Aussie Pizza. Ham, Streaky Bacon, Egg, cheese I haven't had it in a few years but its easily the best pizza for me

    I will be there at your march counter-protesting for my rights to have my pineapple on my pizza!

    Ok. What about the crust? Thick? Thin? Crispy? Charred? I like a thinner charred crust, but occasionally I get in the mood for a big sloppy pizza with a breadier crust.
  • I used to live in New Haven, Connecticut which has its own pizza style and has like 6-8 of the top 100 pizzerias in the US, so I guess I'll take thin crust and charred. In case anyone's familiar, I was always partial to Modern Pizza, versus the more legendary Pepe's and Sally's.

    I'm new here and thought we might be friends... Seems like that won't be the case.

    Extra cheese is two dollars.

    New Haven "apizza" is amazing. Sausage pie at Modern might be my favorite pizza. The clam pie is actually really good too, despite sounding gross.

    Don't the British enjoy putting tuna out of a can on their pizza? I know they enjoy it on their baked potatoes. Canned tuna on a pizza would be pretty dire.

  • Delivered pizzas for 4 years. Fun job. It was for a local owner business of 1st and 2nd gen Italians. Chicago style, not deep dish but much thicker and cheesier than New York. Fresh tomatoe sauce, cheese and sausage made daily. So good. Sausage, green pepper was my go too with Chili flakes.

    Double pepperoni is the bomb dot com.

    i'm never.. EVER.. opposed to mini pepperoni's  as well

  • Yeah, I like the clam pies too. Pepe's version is quite good.

    People I knew were really into the mashed potato pizza at BAR, but I thought it made the pizza too soggy.

    I feel obligated to inject a little of Canada into everything here....fun fact: Hawaiian Pizza was invented in Canada.

  • I lived in Chicago, and even though I moved here to California in 2001, I still miss Chicago style pizza. The absolute best, and I make sure I have it as often as possible whenever I go back. :)

    Boooooo! The only thing that gets more vicious in Australia than the pineapple/no pineapple argument is potato cakes vs potato fritters vs potato scallops.

    You other Aussies are letting me down here! But never mind, @davemcb will be your friend, he's a gross pineapple fan too. ;-)
